R is for Relay Recess

Woo hoo! 300 followers! I am so excited. I'm working on a fun giveaway so be watching out.

Okay, now I've tired myself out with that little burst of energy.

It's the fourth week of school and I did something I RARELY do. I went home in the middle of the day. That's right. I woke up this morning and dragged myself to school. Then called in for a sub.

Thankfully, a substitute picked up the job right away and even showed up early.

I took this half day to recover. Seems like I picked up a little cold on my trip this weekend. I got to go to Florida's Relay for Life Team Development Summit in Orlando.

I am the Team Development Chair for our town's Relay for Life. If you've never heard of Relay for Life, it is an event put on by the American Cancer Society to raise money for the fight against cancer. I strongly encourage you to check it out.

I relay for my grandmas, my friends, and every single child fighting cancer. I believe that I can help create a future where people will not have to relay anymore.

We learned all about recruiting volunteers and teams for this wonderful event and I met tons of amazing people. I feel bad for even complaining about having a cold when there are so many people battling the terrible disease.

The thing I wanted to share with you is something that looks like a ton of fun. It's called Relay Recess.

 Here is a quick video to explain the concept:

If you do the 7 Habits at your school, this goes along with it PERFECTLY.

My school has never done Relay Recess, but I'm going to look into it. It looks like so much fun.

I hope you take a minute to check out the Relay for Life website and get involved. You won't regret it.

Let me know if you've ever done this at your school or are thinking about it. I'd love to share ideas.

Be on the lookout for an upcoming giveaway!
